Bet sports online: Mountaineers, Golden Eagles look to move up in Top 25
  • Moutaineers try to stay in rankings at Marquette
  • Upset-minded Jayhawks aim to slay Spartans
  • Streaking 'Canes head to Boston College

The NCAA basketball betting season is headed to the next gear as conference play has started up. This weekend’s marquee matchup for those who bet on basketball comes from the Big East, where No.18 Marquette will host No.25 West Virginia. In other sports wagering action, the defending national champions from Kansas head to No.8 Michigan State trying to knock off their second Top-25 opponent in a week, while No.17 Boston College wraps up an eventful week of its own when it hosts Miami in ACC action.

West Virginia vs Marquette odds

The Mountaineers (11-3) are coming off a tough loss against Connecticut at home but are still ninth in the nation in points against. The Golden Eagles (14-2) will counter with the 18th-ranking scoring offense in the country, powered by the backcourt duo of Wesley Matthews and Jerel McNeal. The Mountaineers have won two of their three meetings with the Golden Eagles, including a 79-64 victory at home last year. The Golden Eagles are a perfect 11-0 at home, and they will want to avenge 2008’s loss, so bet online with Marquette as NCAA basketball betting favorites.

Kansas vs Michigan State odds

The Jayhawks (11-3) are looking to get back into the Top 25 after beating No.15 Tennessee, and Cole Aldrich is turning into one of the nation’s top centers. The Spartans (12-2) have won eight in a row, and should be NCAA basketball betting favorites at home after beating Ohio State on Tuesday. These two have split a pair of meetings, with the most recent coming in 2003 when the Jayhawks won 81-74. Both of these teams can put up points, but Aldrich will be the difference, so bet online with Kansas.

Miami vs Boston College odds

The Hurricanes (11-3) have won four straight after losing at home to Clemson, but if Miami wants to go further, it’ll need scoring from someone other than sharp-shooting guard Jack McClinton. The Eagles (13-3) followed up their massive win at North Carolina by promptly becoming the first ranked team to ever lose to Harvard -- at home no less. This ACC matchup will feature a great backcourt battle between McClinton and BC’s Tyrese Rice, so online betting players can expect lots of exciting play in this one. The Eagles have dominated the Hurricanes lately, winning nine of their last 10 meetings, and they should be NCAA basketball betting favorites at home as they will want to bounce back from that loss to Harvard. Bet online with Boston College.
